Forum: movies Subject: Error 2002

If someone could help me with this I'd be forever grateful! I'm trying to download the movie "Five" by Arch Oboler (1951), but when I download it and go to open it, I get the following message:

Error 2002- a bad public movie atom was found in the movie (Five by Arch Oboler (1951).mp4)

I am fairly new to all this and I don't know what this means and if it's possible to fix. Is it a problem in the film or in my computer? Can I do something or download something that would enable me to see the film?
PLEASE will someone answer this as I am SO ANXIOUS to see this film!
Thank you in advance for whatever help you can give me.
My email address is hce1010@iprimus.com.au
All the best,
DownUnderGuy

Hi Dwight,
I've been downloading films in 512Kb MPEG4, as that's what was recommended by someone who suggested that to burn these films to DVD, I should use this with the program "ConvertXtoDVD" which is very easy to use. Do you know if I download it via cinepak as you did, will I be able to burn it to DVD with "ConvertXtoDVD"?
Thanks,
Harold

Sorry about delay in getting back to you.If you havent gotten it already,would certainly recommend getting the "cinepack",really XVID version.I dont get much stuff in MP4,is still a pretty new format,and have found it to be buggy at times.I dont have ConvertXtoDVD,have too many video conversion programs already.But looked at their web page,and says it works with XVID.And I downloaded the XVID version of that film,and it looks very good.

Hi Dwight,
Thanks so much for doing this. I'd be most anxious to hear what kind of luck YOU have in downloading this film: "Five" by Arch Oboler (1951). In case you're not aware of it, Oboler was one of the most famous and awarded writers during the "Golden Age of Radio" and I had no idea he did any movie work, so that's why I'm particularly anxious to see this film. I'll wait to hear from you.
Thanks again,
Harold Ellison
